Spray can lacquer is great stuff – but the layers are really really thin…so I don’t see wet sanding til you have around 3 to 5 coats on or you will cut right through the finish.

I have a cheap but works good HVLP gravity gun that runs off my compressor – and I spray Deft Brushing Lacquer. It has a LOT more solids in it so better coating, but also there are retarders and thickeners, that make it quite resistant to sagging/running or getting orange-peel.
